Fact: There is NO USJA senior rank, at any level for Chuck Hardin in the USJA data base.
Fact: There is NO USJA junior ranks, at any level, for Chuck Hardin in the USJA data base.
Fact: There is NO listing for a Chuck Hardin in the USJA data base, period.
Now, all this means is they have no record of him. However, you can NOT fight at ANY Judo shiai without being a member of one of the big three. Chuck said USJA. I have not looked into JF or JI yet. But, in as much as you have to join one of them, and you do get a membership card when you do, the question is simple, which one did you join Chuck?
Also, if the name is wrong, please correct me, because I REALLY want this to work out for you....."Out of every hundred men, ten shouldn't even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle.

seriously. These issues go beyond a simple investigation. A lie of ommission is hard to pinpoint. If you jump the gun though things can get inaccurate fast.
Kinneton I tried to raise issues about the investigations with Cy and lets just say I did not get very far. I was called a hindrance and told that I was butthurt and that I was biased towards the subject of the investigation...
Often as sambo Steve has stated I said "wait" and was told I was naive and other more colorful terms...
So please two requests: get off your high horse challenging people to fights that don't involve you. Stupid use of a Gong Sau yes I will say it as stupid as Matt challenging Cy.
And please understand that Steve's comments about a lie of ommission, people have tried to bring this up and were rebuffed.This thread never was a high quality conversation - My friend vern Gilbert on the William Acquier thread.

Slightly offtopic question, but do you really have to be a member of one of those orgs to compete in ANY Judo tournament? We have a Judo school in Athens that has held small events that as far as I know had nothing to do with any of the major orgs and did not require any kind of signup for anything. Just an entry fee and a gi pretty much. Is that exceedingly rare or what? I know that wouldn't do anything to get you promotion points or could towards Judo rank with any of the orgs, but it would still be a Judo competition.

In the midst of this we have 2 factions of people all bitching and whining at each other over all kinds of stupid ****. And this thread is not unique. There are too many fucking crybabies on here all the time now. If War Wheel just wants to fight someone so he can feel good about himself then I'm game. He can come fight be and get himself some Gong Sau streetcred or whatever the **** he's after.
As for Dsimon: If you are talking about the Ralph Severe thread, I did my LEVEL FUCKING BEST to help that guy and he was a complete fuckhead at every turn. He was actively attempting to impede any attempt to verify anything for him. If you have specific problems with specific issues regarding that writeup then let me know. I'll go to bat for the guy again. I was able to verify him as a legit purple belt and I would have loved to verify his brown belt, but he wouldn't stop being a fuckface for 10 seconds to answer any questions about it.

If you recall USJI suspended USJA last year over insurance issues.
If a Judo school is holding events, and not requiring players to be members, that is a huge insurance violation and WILL result in serious actions. They can lose rank, membership, and be banned from US Judo, it is that big an offense.
So the thought that other "like minded" Judo schools all got together and held "off the book" events, is not likely. Now, open mat is another issue. However, that is not a Shiai, AND, you STILL need EVERY person on your mat to have a card or NO ONE is insured. That rule is in stone."Out of every hundred men, ten shouldn't even be there, eighty are just targets, nine are the real fighters, and we are lucky to have them, for they make the battle. Ah, but the one, one is a warrior, and he will bring the others back." -- Hericletus, circa 500 BC

god this thread and kintanons reaction to it reminds me of when i was 8.
we had this awesome dog, he had huge balls.
we trhought it was normal for that dog to have these giant balls, but after some years he started leaking piss and stuff.
bit nasty, so my parents decided to neuter him.
i cried and i cried because i thought it was just plain mean.
But my parents explained me that eventhough it will hurt the doggy at first, in the long run its in his own interest.
they were right.
